Jean Grey’s lost it.
Mastermind’s been making her think she’s in the past, she’s been smooching dudes she shouldn’t be smooching, and now the Phoenix Force has moved in and I don’t think she can handle it.
All this while the X-Men fight fancy folks and aliens in the conclusion of the Dark Phoenix Saga from Uncanny X-Men #133-137.
And in All Star Superman #3, we meet some jerks!
Next Time: The Flintstones #1-6
X-Men: Apocalypse comes out this week, and to celebrate the X-Men film series’ Sweet 16, we’re ranking the previous 5 X-Men films (and discussing the 3 spinoff films). What’s the worst? What’s the best?
Also, who’s really to blame for the failure of The Last Stand (which turns 10 years old today)? And we discuss screenwriter Simon Kinberg’s penchant for burning bridges (in both The Last Stand and Apocalypse). And what X-Man would be the best Pokémon?
THAT WAS A GAME returns to take a look at the 16-bit Spider-Man and the X-Men in Arcade’s Revenge! This was a 16-bit game where, you guessed it, Spider-Man and the X-Men teamed up. How could they possibly go wrong?
We finally read about the mutant menace as our friends, Scott and Richard, join us to discuss Giant-Size X-Men #1 from 1975, one of the most important X-issues ever!
Not only was it the first new X-Men story in 5 years, but it also marked Wolverine’s 1st time with the X-Men as well as the 1st appearances of fan favorites Nightcrawler, Storm, and Colossus.
We’ll also meet Sunfire and Thunderbird and figure out why nobody remembers them (and no, it’s not just because they’re huge jerks.)
Also, Banshee is there but nobody cares about Banshee.
And, if you’d like to get a jump on next episode, we’ll be reading Superman: Red Son!
